#ICEEhealth @ICEEfest 2016 – Wrapping Up


In this wrap up: What did our speakers say at the event? Or after? How could journalism change a (health) system? Blogs, interviews and sorts… The ICEEfest Academy has it all Numbers? What’s Dragos saying? ICEEfest 360… 

ICEEhealth, the first of its kind event in Romania, is dedicated to the future of health. ICEEfest, already at its 5th edition, is committed to drive innovation, and what can be more disruptive than innovation that runs deep in one of the most important parts of our lives – our health? Healthcare change is happening from the ground up. Right here, right now. One click at a time. At ICEEhealth, we believe we all have a part to play in (our) health – doctors, patients, pharma, insurers, researchers, healthcare providers, pharmacies, investors, designers, tech companies or regulators…
